After seeing the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy up close, New York-base accessories designer Justin von der Fehr decided on a special project. Together with fellow New Yorker, graffiti artist FAUST, the two created a fashion and art collaboration based on the them “Cash Rules Everything Around Me.” For a limited time only, Justin von der Fehr will be offering the JvdF x FAUST Leather Skins for Apple iPhone 4, 4S, and 5, through its online store. Each crafted from premium grade Vachetta leather and hand-embossed with the famous quote in FAUST’s signature font. Both collaborators also mirrored the project onto a New York City billboard as a promotion.
Comes in black, navy, or red, each JvdF x FAUST – Graffiti Embossed Leather Skin retails for US$ 40 with 100% of the proceeds going to Staten Island Unity through the generous help of Pastor Michael Caruso of Lighthouse Tabernacle Church. In the meantime, you can spot the JvdF x FAUST mural on the corner of First Avenue and East 2nd Street in New York City’s East Village neighborhood.
